[image]Scholar Contemplating a Cascade - Yi Chong
The sixteenth-century ink-wash painting, a type rarely found outside Korean collections, uses strong, deliberate brushwork to convey ideas of space and perspective. Yi Chong, a Buddhist monk who came from a renowned family of artists, was a respected court painted during his short life. His work was heavily influenced by the Chinese tradition of the scholar-artist. The style of this painting invokes the Zhe School of Ming dynasty China, and the subject alludes to a poem by the Chinese poet Li Bo...

[image]Mrs. David Forman and Child - Charles Willson Peale
The wife of a wealthy Continental army officer and the mother of eleven children, Mrs. David Forman was portrayed by Charles Willson Peale in an interior that was meant to suggest the elegance and bounty of her domestic life. Peale was one of the rare American colonial artists to include paintings in his portrait interiors. The presence of the landscape hanging behind Ann Forman signaled the cultured life of the Forman household, and the gently idealized curves of its composition offered a paral...

[image]Fresh Air - Winslow Homer
Winslow Homer, who rose to national prominence in the 1860s for his magazine illustrations and oil paintings of modern American life, took up watercolor in the 1870s. Fresh Air is one of the most ambitious of an early series of plein air watercolors depicting fancifully dressed shepherdesses that Homer made at Houghton Farm, a patron’s country estate in upstate New York. He created brilliant effects of light and atmosphere by exploiting the natural transparency of the medium and the brightness...

[image]Small Card Decorated with Mount Fuji (recto) and Paint Bowl and Brush (verso) - Christopher Grant La Farge
Created for use as calling cards, place cards, or menu cards, these charming items indicate how the "Japan craze" permeated all facets of artistic production. Grant La Farge's familiarity with Japanese motifs (such as Mount Fuji, chrysanthemums, and bamboo shoots) undoubtedly came from his family. His father, the artist John La Farge, embraced Japanese aesthetics in his own work and also collected and published widely on Japanese art; Grant La Farge's mother, Margaret, was the grandniece of Comm...

[image]Apple Blossoms - John William Hill
This work depicts a tangled profusion of flowering branches in full sunlight as if viewed from below against a field of blue sky. Hill was undoubtedly working in accordance with Ruskin’s observation that the most beautiful position in which flowers could be seen was the most natural one—flowering plants against grass or moss, and fruit-tree blossoms against the sky.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

[image]The Disbelief of Saint Thomas (Incredulité de Saint Thomas) - James Tissot
The apostle Thomas, who had received the news but not a visit from the risen Christ, refuses to believe in the reality of the Resurrection. When Christ again appears to the disciples, Thomas is still not convinced and, for confirmation, wants to put his fingers into Christ’s wounds. Jesus invites him to do just that but then reproaches him for his lack of belief. Now kneeling before his master, Thomas hangs his head in shame, as Jesus bares his wounded side and declares to Thomas, as well as t...

[image]Yellow Blossom - John William Hill
After reading John Ruskin’s Modern Painters in the 1850s, Hill embraced Ruskinian aesthetic principles and became the first president of the Society for the Advancement of Truth in Art, the organization of the American Pre-Raphaelites. Hill’s commitment to exacting representations of nature is evident in his landscapes and botanical still lifes, such as this close-up study of a squash blossom. With fine brushstrokes, he articulated even the most minute details of petal creases and stem fuzz....

[image]The Sakonnet River - William Trost Richards
William Trost Richards achieved particularly rich color effects in marine paintings from the 1870s, the decade in which he actively embraced the watercolor medium. A devotee of outdoor sketching, he found seemingly infinite variations of sea, sky, and land during his extensive travels along the northeastern coast. (The Sakonnet River was located near Newport, Rhode Island, the seaside resort where Richards summered beginning in 1874.)Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brookly...

The title of Robert Henri's portrait of an unnamed Paris model underscores the artifice of posing by referring to two separate personalities: the historical persona of the ruthless French cardinal Armand Jean du Plessis Richelieu (1585-1642) and that of the anonymous sitter, whose identity remains a mystery.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

[image]The Adoration of the Shepherds (L'adoration des bergers) - James Tissot
In Luke’s Gospel, the shepherds in the hills and valleys surrounding Bethlehem first learn of the miraculous event from an angel who announces the birth of the Savior. The accompanying angels joyously sing their praise of God and urge good will to men, a passage that gives its name to a well-known hymn, “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” (Glory to God in the Highest). In the text he wrote to accompany this image, Tissot explains the local practices for pasturage in the Middle East, noting that small...

[image]Portrait of a Woman (possibly Mrs. James [Hester Stanton Plaisted] Gooch) - John Smibert
John Smibert's Boston portraits were often plain in composition and color, and stiff in expression (like this work). Nevertheless, for a time he was the most experienced and influential artist in New England. The Scottish-born Smibert had trained in London and traveled through Europe before settling in Boston. His studio and "colour shop" (art-supply store) contained his copies after important European works of art...

[image]Unknown Woman - Thomas Wilmer Dewing
Influenced by the works of James McNeill Whistler, Thomas Wilmer Dewing gravitated to the pastel medium for its evocative qualities, which were well suited to the pale, introspective female subjects he favored. Dewing adopted Whistler’s preference for assertively dark papers, but he far exceeded Whistler in his exploitation of the medium’s veil-like effects to evoke a sense of vagueness and immateriality.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for...

Donato dei Bardi worked in Genoa, a city that had close ties to France in the early fifteenth century and where the artist could familiarize himself with the smooth surfaces and intricate details of Franco-Flemish painting. The refined qualities of hair and fur in the figure of Saint Jerome reflect Donato’s inspiration from Northern painting.Saint Jerome is often shown in a cardinal’s robe and hat to reflect his work for the Church...

[image]Woman in Manteau - Robert Henri
Painted in Paris at a time when Robert Henri was determined to make his professional mark, this work shows his favorite model, Berthe Terrier, in a manner deliberately recalling European Old Masters. Although he intentionally allied his art with revered tradition, Henri also inserted a contemporary mood by portraying Berthe with a bold, almost defiant expression. His efforts were rewarded, for the painting brought him favorable reviews when it was displayed at the Paris Salon in 1899.Object meta...

[image]On the Beach at Long Branch--The Children's Hour - Winslow Homer
In this engraving Homer provided a glimpse of holiday life in terms of levels of society within the domestic sphere. A young matron seems about to depart for the company of her social set, leaving her children in the charge of a nanny and a maid. Through careful observation of modes of dress, Homer not only made distinctions between leisure- and workingclass women, but also delineated the hierarchical differences between two members of household staff.Object metadata can change over time, please...

[image]Coaching in New England - Albert Fitch Bellows
The Brooklyn Museum’s collection of American watercolors was begun in 1906, when this work was acquired in a bequest from the Brooklyn collector Caroline H. Polhemus. Coaching in New England was the work of Albert Fitch Bellows, a practitioner and promoter of watercolor beginning in the late 1860s. To demonstrate that watercolor was as significant and as durable as oil painting, he deliberately produced large and highly finished “exhibition watercolors.” This quaint New England subject was...
